Christine

Looking in: Carlton, Saint Kilda, Flemington, Brunswick East, West Melbourne, Yarraville, Collingwood, Fitzroy, Elwood, Richmond, Northcote, Brunswick, Footscray

Hi I'm an expat of the Hills in the Dandenong Ranges and have been happily living in town for the last 6months. I wanted to stay longer but the council has an issue with our landlord so we had to move out immediately. I'm on a mission to find an alternative ASAP. I love live music, camping, gardening, cycling, photography and I spend most of my week nights catching up with friends, wandering through parks, seeing movies or listening to some of the awesome local roots music in a cosy back street bar. I'm a professional at the share house thing and have references but most importantly, I'm respectful, tidy, honest and I pay up on time. I have a full time 8:30 - 5:30pm Mon-Fri job as an Inventory Controller & I'm gay but haven't been practicing for about 5yrs so not sure if it counts?

Yvette

Looking in: Footscray, Seddon, Kingsville, Spotswood, Yarraville

Writer, student, cricket tragic and aussie rules fan, and loving life in Melbourne since I moved from country WA at the start of 2016. I'm pretty easy going, enthusiastic about life, enjoy cooking and eating healthily, and keeping fit and active (cycle, walk, gym, swim, cricket). My dream house share would be a quiet, friendly, clean and tidy household in the inner west - emphasis on the clean and tidy bit! I'm over grotty cluttered house shares. I'm seeking like-minded housemates who will all do their bit to help keep the house (and garden where there is one) presentable. Not a dog fan, but cats are good. I enjoy a quiet drink most nights, and would be up for some shared cooking and socialising. I do need my own quiet and private space though, as I often work and write from home, so need a decent-sized bedroom where I can fit my desk, bookcase and bedroom furniture is a must. Finding a housemate who's also into sport would be a huge bonus! I play cricket for Spotswood CC in the summer, go to many cricket and footy matches (Sheffield Shield, BBL, AFL) and watch even more on TV/live apps. I also enjoy exploring new parts of Melbourne/Victoria and catching live music and writing / book related events. I'm currently in a share house I've called home for 1yr+ that is better than many, so I'm not in a huge rush to move out; but I am keen to find housemates and home where I will fit in better.

Hey guys and gals, I'm a 20 something 9-5 professional looking for a place with two or less people. I'm interested in keeping fit and meditation.

Jen

Looking in: Essendon, Flemington, Ascot Vale, Yarraville, Moonee Ponds, Footscray

I'm considerate and respectful. Like to have a friendly relationship with housemates but also some space. Believe that communicating well with the people you live with is the best way to make a household work. Respect other people's property and preferences regarding cleanliness. I have a very cute ginger cat named Abraham. I'm 40yo, working in health at one of the hospitals in Melbourne. Not super fussy about the location of the house, so long as it's accessible to the city. LGBTIQA friendly.

Molly & Chris

Looking in: Prahran, Richmond, Footscray, Saint Kilda, North Melbourne, Fitzroy, Collingwood, Kew

We're a couple looking for somewhere to stay while we settle into Melbourne. I, (Molly), am a Kiwi female and Chris is an American male. Chris will initially be on a working holiday visa but we'll be seeking a long term visa in the near future. Neither of us are in the country yet but I'm ready to leave within a few days notice of getting a house and Chris will be moving over from the States in June. We're both musicians who love to cook, we don't have any pets ourselves but love all animals and are comfortable around them. We love going out to gigs and having a good time but prefer our place to be the quiet and clean home base. I'm currently a bartender but wanting to return to retail management in Melbourne and Chris is currently a manager at Vans. We're basically a pregame dream team, Chris can help you dress up while I make you the best margaritas and mojitos of your life - You never have to worry about first date prep ever again! We're LGBT+ friendly and don't really have a preference as to what gender our future flatties are as long as we all get along and have our privacy. I don't drive and Chris won't have a vehicle when he moves so we're likely going to need to be somewhere close to public transport. If you have anything else you'd like to ask please shoot us a message!

Kate

Looking in: Collingwood, Carlton, Richmond, Footscray, South Yarra, Southbank, Melbourne

I'm a 24 year old professional who has just accepted a new job working in Melbourne working 9-5. Ideally looking for somewhere central to the CBD as that's where I will be working or within walking distance to public transport. Also would be ideal to have some shops and a gym nearby :) About me, I'm a very neat and tidy person. I don't smoke and will be looking for somewhere smoke free. I don't have any pets however love animals so if you have a dog I am totally ok with that! I also like to cook and am happy to cook for two if you do the cleaning up 😁😁 I don't know many people in Melbourne so it would be nice to find a like minded person who on occasion would be up for a night out or a quiet drink or meal some where.

Josh

Looking in: Clayton South, Clayton, Oakleigh, Hughesdale, Oakleigh South, Ascot Vale, Kensington, North Melbourne, Caulfield, South Yarra, Richmond, Saint Kilda, Brunswick, Footscray, Flemington

Hello, my name's Josh! I've been couch surfing in Melbourne for a month after moving interstate from NSW and would really like to settle down and find a permanent home. I'm a first year science student studying full time at Monash Uni. I'm a friendly, easygoing, sociable guy but am also respectful of others' privacy and while I'm up for a chat I also enjoy some downtime like anyone else. I realise the responsibilities involved in living with others and am a very clean, tidy and reliable person, contributing my fair share to ensuring the place is in good condition and rent is paid on time. Lover of all animals and would be totally down to live with pets of any kind. Am open to living with any and all kinds of people but would prefer to live with other students or people around my age. As I'll have uni nearly everyday it's quite important that public transport is nearby, and it would be especially amazing if I could find a place close to the Clayton campus. Also open to start/join a group of others looking for housing - send me a message if you'd like to know more about me or if you have a room available and thanks!

Saaga & Luke

Looking in: Port Melbourne, Carlton, Yarraville, North Melbourne, West Footscray, Footscray

Hi! We are Luke (Aussie) and Saaga (Finnish), a couple in our 20's looking for a great new place to live. Luke works in a school in Sunshine and I am a future student and work part time in a cafΓ©. We have lived in a share house before (I think there was about 18 of us at one point?) so we are very laid back and get along well with different people. I love cooking and baking so you'll probably see me in the kitchen quite a lot, we both enjoy having a chill time with our flatmates and sharing a conversation but also like to have some alone time. We are very respectful, tidy and clean up after ourselves (especially me, and Luke as well if I kick him in the butt). Whenever there's a chance, we like to go out and enjoy what Melbourne has to offer, especially music scene, so pretty much always down for a good gig and couple cold bevvies! We're not total party animals though so we go out and have fun and come home to rest, not party. We are more than happy to tell more about ourselves, so if anythings bothering you just shoot a message! Would appreciate a nice little (or big, size doesn't really matter too much as long as we both fit there) furnished room with a bed big enough for two to crash, and of course a chill environment to live in. Ready to move in asap when we find the right place.

Callum Baker

Looking in: Preston, Brunswick East, Essendon, Footscray, Moonee Ponds, Fitzroy, Coburg, Brunswick

Looking for a chill household with an unfurnished room preferably, I've been told I'm friendly and I know how to keep a clean house and a pretty sick garden. I work most nights at a hotel and yes I do come into the house as quiet as the grave if it is past a certain hour, funnily enough I sleep like the dead so no need to return the favour, as for the rest of the time I am rather outgoing. Can adapt easily to most housing situations and respectful of anybody who chooses to share a roof over their head.

Tabitha

Looking in: Carlton, Campbellfield, Thornbury, Watsonia, Box Hill, Caroline Springs, Sunshine, Maidstone, Hoppers Crossing, Greensborough, Altona, Deer Park, North Melbourne, West Melbourne, Werribee, Footscray, Melbourne

Hey I'm Tabitha, I'm 21 and recently unemployed (currently looking for new work). Now I do have a stable income, so no need to worry about me being unable to pay rent, etc. I am looking for a great group of people to live with, in a fun and friendly environment. I like to think I'm a pretty clean and easy going person. I'm all about respecting people's space and cleaning up after myself, so no, you won't have to worry about stray dishes. I like to keep to myself mostly, unless you coax me out of my bedroom with Netflix and sugary snacks. I do enjoy football, so if you go for North Melbourne we will get along great, and if not, we can work on that! While a little shy, I do enjoy some friendly company and having a few drinks. I'm also a bit of a geek and love watching questionably "good" movies and reading a cliched YA book. 😊 Anyways, I hope to hear from y'all soon!
